Review of El Toro

El Toro
Ranked #73 of 721 Restaurants in Portsmouth
Price range: US$6 - US$26
Description: El Toro is a cosy cafe, restaurant and bar in Southsea, fit for coffee, brunch, cocktails and gourmet food from the grill. If you're in for coffee or brunch it's safe to expect plenty of choice, from Brazilian-style street food to eggs done all sorts of ways and even Mexican ribs. If you're getting your grill on, why not go surfing & turfing with a good bit of steak alongside some king prawns?

Tonight I had a meal with my boyfriend and his family for his 22nd birthday! Food was amazing and at such a great price! The staff were more than helpful and made the meal even more delightful! Can’t wait to return again soon!!!

My partner booked a table my birthday. The food was beautiful. Highly recommended the Chicken & Ribs. Also worth paying extra for garlic mayo, big lover of the stuff and it was bloody lovely!
Food didn't take long to come out. Although we did book a table just before the busy period.
The only thing that was on the downside is that our waitress didn't know what wine 2 people asked for and didn't know what archers was. She seemed very confused and didn't really understand the menu. Seemed like it was her first day. Everyone has to start someone but maybe a little more training was needed.
Other then that, was a great evening and great food!

Visited Saturday night for a birthday night out with friends. Really nice place with a good atmosphere, busy but not maniacal. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Food was delicious, I had Sea Bass and sauté potatoes. Most of our party had steaks and they went down a treat. Scallops weren't too good but this was sorted. All in all a good lively time out out.
